    product made in China -- manual warns that this product contains lead known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

    I have the B 80 unit FYI

  • kgahearn Jul 08, 2008

    My B80 machine continues to display the de scale warning and I have done it twice. Why is this happening?

  • kgahearn May 11, 2010

    I called customer service -- got 2 different sets of instructions on how to de-scale the machine -- neither of which were anything like the instruction manual. And NOW you think I should PAY you for a solution? I'm not sure the instruction manual didn't do more harm than good -- since it clearly tells you to empty the machine and leave it on for 4 hours! That seems crazy to me. And I'm still getting the de-scale message.



    I'd appreciate proper instructions -- and I clearly do NOT expect to have to pay for them. I think I paid enough for the machine.

SOURCE: warning of lead in keurig coffeemaker

The solder joint in the tubing. Personally, I don't see a risk but the environmentalists see a risk in any lead at all. The plumbing in my house has ALL lead soldered joints. Now, plumbers are not allowed to use lead type solder. If the water just passes over the lead, there is absolutely minimal chance of problems. Keeping wine in a lead crystal decantor will also leech lead into the drink but, you don't hear all the hype about that. It's all about making the earth green. Toy wagons are being recalled because of lead in the paint. I don't know of ANY kids who ever ATE their wagon.

SOURCE: I was concerned about the warning on the B 30 Mini

Due to current laws, all products containing components with known harmful substances have to disclose to the consumer. In this case the components containing a trace of lead do not come in contact with your consumable beverage. Now, if you were to eat the coffee maker in its entirety at a rate of say ten thousand a day every day for 1000 years you might have a few percent greater chance of developing cancer. Lng winded way t say "No worries".... Eric

Is this valve safe to use? It has a cancer warning label on it for the state of california. What about other states?


Be sensible. In any event, not a chance of backing into your house water.

Think a bit about this absurdity. Cancer warnings are so overblown and abused - its no longer possible to know the real and more obvious threats apart from those with no practical threat whatsoever. California is one of those absurd states which has thus blurred the practical usefulness of these warnings....tell me that is not whats most dangerous :/

Is there a risk of cancer while using this product? It says so on the valve for california. Why only california?


Well california has the most strict environmental laws and always errors to the side of caution. Emissions is where they are most stringent. I would tend to walk on their findings and operate accordingly.

This sounds like the California warnings placed on many items. Assemble the product, and use according to manufacturer recommendations. It will work fine for you.

I have just replaced my projector lamp on my50 dlp samsung tv. when i switced it on the power is getting there but then turning itself off and the warning light is showing on the panel. any ideas?


Are you sure that you purchased the proper lamp? Quadruple check that you've connected it properly and that there are no shorts from unwanted contact between leads/traces. If you had to solder anything, then make sure your soldering job didn't short two traces together.
The warning light is sometimes in relation to too much power running through the set, and then it shuts itself off to protect the circuits from basically bursting into flames.

Causes cancer?


It's a result of Proposition 65 (here's a wiki page about it) a California law requiring that sticker on any product containing lead, among other things.

Your GPS has electrical components which are attached with solder, a tin/lead alloy. Since it contains lead, the law says that it must bear that warning.

If you don't eat it, you personally should be fine.

If you recycle it instead of throwing it in the trash, the groundwater should be fine.
